Jack H. Berryman was born July 28th, 1921 in Salt Lake City, Utah. He acquired his
first degree, an A.A. in General Studies from Westminster College in Salt Lake City
in 1940. In 1941 he joined the U.S. Marine Corps and served in the Pacific, taking
part in some of the War's fiercest battles, and receiving many medals for his
courage. After the War he returned to Utah and received a B.S. in Science and an
M.S. in Ecology from the University of Utah. Berryman's life would be dedicated to
work in the Natural Resources field.
Berryman was employed by the Utah Fish and Game Department in the late 1940s. Similar
jobs would require him to travel across the country in the next few years, working
in New Mexico with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service from 1950-1953, and in
Minnesota with the Federal Bureau of Sport Fisheries and Wildlife from 1953-1959.
Berryman then spent several years teaching in the College of Natural Resources at
Utah State University. In the mid 1960s Berryman went to Washington, DC to work for
the US Fish and Wildlife Service, a position he held for more than a decade. In 1979
he began work with the International Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies,
which required him to travel around the world. He was still doing this work for the
IAFWA when he passed away on March 3, 1999.
Jack H. Berryman received a number of awards during the course of his life, a fact
recorded in his photograph collection. Several of these included a Special Service
Award from the Department of the Interior, the Seth Gordon Award, membership in the
National Honorary Forestry Society, the Aldo Leopold Award, the Special Conservation
Achievement Award, and membership in The International Association of Fish and
Wildlife Agencies. Utah State University founded the Jack Berryman Institute for
Wildlife Damage Management in his honor in 1993. Berryman wrote a number of journal
articles on wildlife , recreation, and land use in the course of his long
The Berryman Photograph Collection consists of 344 images of important events in
Berryman's public life usually when he was being presented an award or honorarium of
some kind. Other photographs detail Berryman and co-workers in the 1940's and 50's
fishing and traveling in the Utah back country, and one folder consists of pictures
of Berryman's home and gardens in Fairfax, Virginia. The photos do not seem to be in
any particular chronological order, and they were processed in the order they were
found in the box. The collection contains both color and black and white
